What is an ASR file?

An ASR file is a game data archive used by a video game created using the Asura Engine. It contains game assets, such as sounds, music, models, and textures. Some examples of games that use ASR files include The Simpsons Game, Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem, and the Sniper Elite series.

More Information

The Asura Engine is a video game development engine created by Rebellion Developments. Many games published by Rebellion and other publishers, such as Electronic Arts, LucasArts, and Sierra Entertainment, have been developed using the Asura Engine.

Asura Engine games often store some of their game assets in ASR archives. While most players will never encounter or need to open a game's ASR files, modders may be interested in expanding ASR archives, extracting the assets they contain, and modifying them.

NOTE: ASR files most commonly contain audio assets, such as in-game music and sound effects.

How to open an ASR file

You can open an ASR file using a variety of player-created tools, including the Asura Engine Extractor (Windows) and QuickBMS (Windows). To open an ASR file using QuickBMS, you must download and use a related .BMS script (linked below).
